Bob Graham
San Francisco Chronicle
If the dialect is hard to comprehend, that soon becomes part of the joke. It's unlikely that even the British audiences who made Lock, Stock a big hit got it all. Full Review
David Edelstein
The laborious title of an even more laborious Cockney action movie that some people think is the cat's pajamas crossbred with the bee's knees. Full Review
Derek Elley
Though Ritchie’s screenplay scores a 10 for sheer complexity and cleverness, it rates much lower down the scale for comprehensibility and audience involvement. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
A special weapon unto itself. Spring-loaded with cockney esprit, it peppers its audience with aggressive, sarcastic grapeshot. That's English for "fun," by the way. Full Review
Elvis Mitchell
The New York Times
Flashy, random shifts of film speed and a true rogues' gallery of striking if one-note characters, do hold interest even if they have no real right to. The commercial aspects also deflect attention from the fact that this story has almost no center at all. Full Review
